Alcoholic remanded for assault and threat


Evans Kwasi, a known alcoholic at Dormaa-Ahenkro has been remanded for two weeks by a circuit court for assault and threatening to kill his mother and younger sister.

He will re-appear before the court on April 17.

Police Chief Inspector Matthew Yeboah told the court presided by Mr Vincent Carl Senu that the accused was a carpenter's apprentice and often got drunk and disturbed residents of the area.

He said on March 30 this year, Kwasi returned from his usual drinking spree and accused his younger sister of being the cause of all his troubles in life and battered her into submission.

Inspector Yeboah said when his mother tried to rescue the girl Kwasi turned his anger on her and wrestled her to the ground.

A report was made to the police and Kwasi was arrested but was later granted police enquiry bail upon a request by his stepfather for an amicable settlement of the matter at home, Chief Inspector Yeboah said.

He said when the accused got back home he declared 'war' on the entire household causing some of them to flee for safety.

The prosecutor said this act angered the stepfather who caused his re-arrest.
